Farmers in northern Spain are battling a new pest that’s killing crops across the region and threatening the agricultural system.
The fungus, called botanical gardena , has been linked to crops that have been planted in areas where the fungus has not been present.
The plant has also been spreading into areas where people are using pesticides to kill it.
As the plant grows, it produces a toxin that kills plants.
The toxic fungus is believed to have been discovered by scientists in the 1990s.
A recent survey found that around 10% of farms in the region have been infected with botanical gardener , a term that describes the plant that is growing in the field.
The pest has been causing crop damage for months in some areas of northern Spain, with the area near the Spanish town of Toledo being the most affected.
The news comes as many countries are trying to protect farmers and other livestock from the invasive fungus, and as a new poll found that 70% of people across the U.S. and Canada are in favor of GMO-free food.
